Obama's War on Fox News

It is no surprise that we continue to see immature and unpresidential behavior emanating from Hussein. It could be in the form of an inferior bow to a foreign leader, an appearance on an irrelevant platform such as 'The View', a mispronunciation of the word 'corpseman', an inability to throw a baseball correctly, and in many cases an attack on an American media entity.

Yes, PRESIDENT Obama is still a crying about little old Fox News. This time, he is saying Fox News is "destructive to America."

In a more than 8,000-word interview with Rolling Stone Magazine, Obama compared the cable news channel to papers owned by William Randolph Hearst at the turn of the 20th century that unabashedly pushed the media titan's own political views.
Let's take a trip down irony lane, shall we? If I recall, the 2008 presidential campaign was one filled with complete, unabashed bias in favor of the boy king's campaign. There was an absolute disappearance of objective reporting. Everyone knows this. Sometimes, it appeared as if reporters from such networks as MSNBC, CBS, CNN, and ABC actually worked for the Obama campaign. Let's look at the numbers Mr. Obama:

From Journalism.org's findings...

Take a look at another study from the Center for Media and Public Affairs from George Mason University. They went through 585 network stories between August 23rd and September 30th, 2008 and found Obama had 65% favorable coverage compared to a dismal 36% for McCain. They called it, "Obama-mania".

For CBS, 73% of comments were favorable towards Obama. 31% towards McCain. NBC was 56% for Obama and 16% for McCain. ABC 57% for Obama and 42% for McCain.

The Project for Excellence in Journalism found that MSNBC was almost entirely for Obama (surprise, surprise!). 73% of their coverage of the election was negative towards the McCain campaign while just 14% was negative towards Obama.

And what did they say about Fox News? 40% were negative towards McCain, and 40% negative towards Obama. How about that?

Let's not even get into the treatment of Sarah Palin.

The irony here is amazing. This current President owes the media his current position. They handed it to him a silver platter. The American media was the gasoline that kept the Obama campaign running, and they were proud of it. Yet, our president has the audacity to attack a news outlet for media bias. Why? Because they have the guts to question his anti Capitalist, quasi-Marxist policies for America. How dare they?

Yes, we all know Fox News is biased. They lean right because the country leans right. Which is why they kill in the ratings. It's good business. And it is obviously getting under the boy king's skin. He's like the immature, newly crowned Ceasar in the film Gladiator, crying about criticism.

He'll have a lot more to cry about in a month.

He has the same problem that many professional athletes have. They do not believe they could ever do wrong, or no one should ever doubt their abilities. These people have been coddled all their life and they actually believe they are perfect! How wrong they are!

Well said Hack. The entire Obamunist, messiah phenomenom has proven to be such an unmitigated disaster. The man is nothing away from a teleprompter and scripted answers. I can't wait for November either!

It all adds up to make him look ridiculous, esp. when Fox has SUCH a large viewership. What is he thinking??

Yes. It's called "nar-ciss-ism."
